  1. Extraordinary scenes when the gok wan look alike came on to sing the Mel C bit of When You’re Gone. Quite good gig, but had a bit of an end-of-term feel about it, a few dropped notes from Fast Fingers guitar player and some awkward jams. Was generally distracted by the 50’s haircuts. BA looked like the Duke of Edinburgh! Possibly a bit cheeky to end on an acoustic encore. Got to go out on a high surely! On the whole though, he’s got enough hits to make it an enjoyable night.

  2. Yes the charity-winning eunuch gave an extraordinary rendition of When You’re Gone, providing a strange “Charity Fund Raiser” feel to what should have been a straight rock gig. And the medley with the drummer using kitchen utensils as a kit was plain daft. Keith Scott’s ricket was almost certainly caused by the disastrous use of a capo, fooling him into thinking he was in a different key – a bit lax and last-nightish. Fun though…
